Ross Davies has been appointed as Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK’s head of district management and connectivity sales teams.

Davies was previously based in Dubai, where he held the position of head of sales, key accounts and used truck for Mercedes-Benz Trucks in the Middle East and North Africa region, and was responsible for steering manufacturer and distributor sales operations in 19 markets.

Explaining his decision to return to the UK after a decade away, Ross said: “It was time for my next big challenge. I was attracted by the maturity of the market here in the UK, and by the opportunities that are presenting themselves at the moment under the new leadership of MD Wolfgang Theissen, whose vision is to cement Mercedes-Benz Trucks’ position on the podium.

“Our aim is to reinforce the trust that operators of new and used Mercedes-Benz and FUSO vehicles place in our dealer network. Across sales, customer service and parts, we must build an aura of quality and professionalism, that reassures our customers we are there to support them through thick and thin.”

Reporting to Davies are four district managers: James Collins, Scott Miller, Gary North and Stephen Richardson; with a fifth member of the team yet to be appointed.

“It’s certainly our job to help dealers maintain and develop their relationships with established Mercedes-Benz customers,” he continued. “However, an equally important aspect of the district manager’s role is to spark ideas and new initiatives that can help us win new converts to our brand.”

It is the first time that Mercedes-Benz Trucks UK’s head of district management has been responsible for connectivity as well, and Davies will have three connectivity specialists reporting to him.
